about Sedation Dentistry
How does the Sedation Dentistry work?
First, you meet with our practice to learn about your dental anxiety, health history and determine if oral conscious sedation is a fit for you.
With sedation dentistry, the patient orally takes a pill that induces a highly relaxed state.
The patient is awake and aware of their surroundings and can follow instructions from the dentist.
Because the pill is taken before the appointment and takes a little while to wear off, the patient will need someone to drive them to the dentist’s office and back again after the appointment.
No IVs are necessary for oral conscious sedation, which helps relieve extra fears that patients may have.
